Faculty of Education, Brixen-Bressanone, Room 1.32


The presentation draws from fieldwork with Ara Irititja, an Indigenous digital archiving project for remote communities in central Australia, to argue that the ways in which Indigenous people are taking up digital media—both interfacing with a multimedia archive and deciding how it circulates—reveals both how we tend to naturalize access to/use of the worldwide web, and suggests how we might think critically about our interactions with online forms. 

The lesson in English language is open for all. Organized by Susanne Elsen in the series TRANSFORM – transformative Science and Development
